Hello.. i'm new to this board and i just thought i'd introduce myself.. i've had depression pretty much most of my life and i also suffer from extreme panic disorder.. i'm on the med remeron for my depression and lorazepam for panic.. and while they aren't my miracle meds, they have greatly eased alot of my inner pains..
i hope to meet all of you and share on how we may be able to beat these dreaded diseases that make us suffer so..
My name is Kyle and I suffer from depression and anxiety, among a few other health problems. Glad to have you here on the boards. You can get alot of questions answered here if you need to know something. The people here are really nice and have helped me a bunch. They are like another family to me. Hope to hear from you soon and if you have a problem don't be afraid to pipe up and ask for help. Bye for now.
I have had depression for too long, I have started to get panic attacks. Also it had effected my eating inthat I don't really eat. Bad I know, and if TD is reading this I am getting some Vitamins.
Welcome, everyone is great.
hey everyone. I have read your replys and agree. Everyone here is so nice and I am sure you will get a lot of good outa theses bored. I was dignosed with depression only 3 and a half months ago but have had it far longer then that. If you need anything my address is... firstname.lastname@example.org Just drop me a line (and that goes for everyone)
Hi panzee. I'm new also. I can't remember when I wasn't depressed although it's been much more extreme in the recent years/months. I'll have to ask my doc. what my "diagnosis" is but she said for me to tell my insurance company that I was "severely depressed". I'm on Serzone but she wants to add Effexor. I haven't agreed but will discuss it with her again on the 31st and express my concern about the difficult withdrawal. Anyway, welcome to the board which seems like an on-line family already.
Hi there! I came across this board a few weeks ago and I find it to be a place I really enjoy visiting. I usually check things out a few times a day as I am on leave from work and I have to keep myself busy. I haven't had the pdoc diagnosis yet (that's coming next week) but I have a strong suspicion that I am bipolar and have been in denial for many many many years. Right now I'm in the worst depression of my life. I can hardly get out of bed! Not on meds yet but am doing a lot of research so when I do see the pdoc I can suggest the ones I want to try first. Anyhow, look forward to hearing more about you. TAke care.
Hey Panzee (and other new folk),
Glad to see you here, misery loves company they say...hehehe
Seriously, your input and compassion would be appriciated and we hope we might somehow assist you.
Oh, almost forgot to say..don't forget to take your B complex and Zinc !
Peace<p>[This message has been edited by TrickyDick (edited 01-25-2001).]
Hello and Wow! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
I never expected to go out to the Drs. and come home to this wonderful welcome.. Thank You so much, everybody.. Really.. I'm touched..
Hi kyle and jade.. Well.. we're in the same boat, so to speak, having anxiety, panic disorder and depression.. I often ask myself that chicken and egg question in regards to PD and depression.. Which came first?!? I don't know, but they both really stink! Thank you both for your kind welcome and I hope you both are feeling well tonight..
Hi Dustin.. I'm so sorry you were just recently DXed with depression..
Its so very hard.. And, I hope you have a caring support system and a Dr that will work with you on meds and stuff.. Thank you for your warm welcome..
Hi melody.. I love your name.. I'm sorry you also suffer this dreaded disease and I hope your Dr can find your miracle med or med combo for you soon.. I know.. I have also heard the Effexor tales regarding withdrawl, but, I've heard some great success stories about it also.. Maybe you'll be one of those.. I hope so..
Hi SoLost.. I have a 2 friends who are BiPolar and the sad thing for both of them is they were wrongly DXed with depression and given meds that made them more depressed! Finally, they were properly DXed and now one is now on Neurontin and the other is on Lithium and they are both brand new people and very happy.. So you may want to research those meds if you haven't already.. Thank you for your kind welcome..
Hi TrickyDicky.. I voted for you! Hahaa.. Now before you pass judgement on me.. I was very young and stupid, okay? And thats my story and I'm sticking to it! I don't know anything about B complex or Zinc! But, if you say they'll help.. I'm on my way to the drug store now! Thank you for welcoming me in..
(((HugeHuggss)) to you all and Thank You..

Hi clouds.. I didn't know alice cooper is a republican.. That's very interesting.. I'm a republican.. But, I always vote for who I like rather than go by party affliation..
Yes.. My name is from the flower I love.. Although Pansy was already taken here, so I took Panzee.. I just love the name clouds.. I know a cloudy from another board, but, clouds is a much more serene and happy name..
The graphic stuff is easy once you figure it out.. You find and image you like that ends in gif. and you put [IMG] at the beginning of the grapics code and [/IMG] at the end of the code.. and Voila! You'll make a graphic appear..
I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for saying Hello..
